German Airline Air Berlin To Fly to Havana

The German airline Air Berlin will shortly begin flights to Havana, adding two flights a week from Dusseldorf to the Cuban capital city, said the Ministry of Tourism (Mintur) in Cuba.

The new flights will start on May 28th, offering “excellent opportunities to continue strengthening ties between Cuba and Germany,” said Mintur.

Mintur said in a press conference that such actions confirm the preference of Germany for Cuban destinations.

According to Mintur, Air Berlin will operate twice a week, on Thursdays and Saturdays.

The new flights will have capacirty for more than 1,400 people each week, and the number of seats from Germany will increase to 4,700 after adding the flights of Condor and Eurowings, said Mintur.

According to Mintur, Germany is among the three main sources of tourists to Cuba. The number of German tourists in 2015 reached 175,264, for a 26-percent growth compared to 2014, said the source.
